Systems, Man & Cybernetics - April 2015 - 39

Call for Papers for Special Issue  
on "Drawing and Handwriting Processing for User‐Centered Systems" 
IEEE Transactions on Human‐Machine Systems 
There has been significant progress in the automatic processing of handwriting and drawing, especially in
computational models to generate, analyze and recognize pen tip and gesture trajectories in various
applications. While it was thought that manuscript production would decrease with the dissemination of
computers, today the trend is reversed with the boom of new touch and pen-based interactive devices.
Progress in automatic processing of handwriting and drawing, both on-line and off-line, opens real
opportunities to produce a true "graphonomics" continuum from paper to digital practices. One key challenge
is to bring pattern recognition into reality with applications, taking advantage of the implicit or explicit
human-machine interactions.
In this special issue, we invite new and original scientific work taking into account the user in the drawing and
handwriting processes in terms of usability, efficiency, collaboration, interaction, cross-learning, and related
topics. Consequently, papers are solicited that cross the various communities studying these important and
complex human-machine relationships in "graphonomics" fields: pattern recognition, humanities,
neuroscience, arts ─ by considering human centered point of views to design, model and test new advances in
these research areas.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
─ Pen and touch-based human-machine interactions with gesture or drawing interpretation.
─ Human-machine cooperation in education: semi-automated handwriting evaluations; teaching and
learning handwriting based on children-machine interaction.
─ Adaptive, incremental, evolving learning approaches for: handwriting recognition (off-line and online), writer identification and recognition, signature verification.
─ Document processing based on human-machine interaction loop: historical document, sketches
─ Human-machine cooperation in medical applications based on handwriting analysis, motor control,
learning and adaptation of writing and drawing movements in neuroscience
─ Usability, efficiency, collaboration, interaction experiments for applications to evaluate humanmachine cooperation in the graphonomics field.
─ Interaction with mobile devices using drawing and handwriting.
─ Multi-language handwriting processing.
